For The Gentleman Farmer: A Rolls-Royce SUV

The folks at Rolls Royce have finally thrown up their hands and decided to pander to the masses a little and bring us a Rolls-Royce SUV. Of course, I can agree the world does not really need such a thing, but then we don't really need the Bugatti Veyron or exorbitantly-priced Swiss watches either. We should get to see this new addition at the forthcoming 2015 Geneva Auto Show.
Not that Rolls would ever deign to call this vehicle, which is as yet unnamed, an SUV. This should come as no surprise when you remember what that term stands for: sport utility vehicle. These three words are anathema to everything Rolls Royce Motor Cars stands for.
